    P.S. if this is in the wrong place please move it mods.
  2. That's what a PA system is for........plug in instruments. They're for the whole band though.

    You would need something to go between your bass and the mixer, however, such as a direct box or a line out of your amp.

    I was wondering, could a POD be used as a direct box?

    Yup, the Bass POD is a direct box as well as a pre-amp.
